KPS Hosts Successful STEAM Night

After launching a successful STEAM Night last year at Kingsford Park Elementary School, organizers were able to build upon that success during this year’s event.

Held in late March, STEAM Night brought together more than 150 attendees and dozens of local businesses, agencies, organizations and school district staff members to engage in various activities. According to KPS teacher Kelly Moxley, who helped coordinate the event, it was a team effort that created fun learning opportunities for students.

“We are incredibly grateful to our families and community partners who collaborated to make STEAM Night such a resounding success,” Moxley said. “There were so many smiling faces engaging in STEAM activities. It was rewarding to see everything come together.”

Activities ranged from drone demonstrations to robotics to computer coding and more. Participants also had the opportunity to use Ozobots and Cubelets from the Model Schools’ Equipment Loans program through the Center for Instruction, Technology & Innovation. In addition to activities led by district staff members, several local agencies and education partners were on hand including the SUNY Oswego Science Departments, Department of Homeland Security, the Children’s Museum of Oswego, CiTi, and the Oswego County Health Department.

“Our vision for this event was to inspire inquiry and curiosity, and that’s exactly what happened,” Moxley said. “Our students were able to explore and ask thought-provoking questions while learning about complex topics. It was a wonderful night of learning and collaboration.”
